Jim-Caldwell-200We think of everyone who is a part of the Photo Shootout as a member of our big crazy family (we put the “fun” in “dysfunctional”).  If you have been to one, you know exactly what we are talking about!  If you haven’t, you’ll love the fun and friendship you will find there.  Each day we’ll be featuring a little bit about each of our instructors for the upcoming Tampa Bay Photo Shootout, a group of folks we just couldn’t do this whole thing without!

Up first is Jim Caldwell (who has a birthday today!); photographer, videographer, digital guru, drone pilot, mustache model, and long time instructor for the Photo Shootout.  Jim is a veteran of both the Black Hills and Tampa Bay Photo Shootouts.  We’ve known Jim and his wife Carolyn for close to a decade, and he has been a big part of helping make the Shootout grow.

At the upcoming Tampa Bay Photo Shootout, he will be teaching Planetarium: Night Photography TechniquesFast Forward: The Art of Timelapse PhotographyPatterns in Nature, and Painting with Light.  You can see more of his work and his bio on the Photo Shootout site, as well as his websites elusiveimage.net/ and www.thefotobug.com (with fellow instructor Fred Rodgers)
